4/30 Neighborhood Meet & Greet!

Coffee Break at Hope's Market for Community Leaders of HiFi

Come check out a new healthy food option in your neighborhood!

Hope's Market owner Sonia is transforming her liquor store into a new Healthy Neighborhood Market, with fresh produce, healthier snack foods and more! She is investing her own time and money to make her store a reliable source for delicious, nutritious, affordable food and a safe community space in Historic Filipinotown. With consulting from the LA Food Policy Council's "Healthy Neighborhood Market Network" and the API Obesity Prevention Alliance's "Fresh HiFi" project, Sonia plans to complete her market makeover by the end of summer 2014.


Hope's Market needs neighborhood leaders like you to back up her efforts by spreading the word to family and friends about her new healthy food options. We invite you to come out to the Neighbor Meet and Greet on Wednesday, April 30th, and discover the exciting changes Sonia has in store!


Come with Curiosity!



We welcome your enthusiasm and input!

Agenda

10-10:20am - Come in, grab a delicious certified Organic, Fair Trade, and Kosher cup of coffee from the western highlands of Guatemala (with respects to Kishé Foods, LLC), and take a look around. Grab a bite of a classic, fresh bagel and cream cheese (from our great neighbors Brooklyn Bagel Bakery) to compliment your coffee.

Sonia and her team would love to meet you, and share Sonia's plans to bring healthy food to the neighborhood.


10:20-10:45am - We'll whip up a snack for you to enjoy.

Watch a healthy cooking demonstration, made from new fresh foods coming into Hope's Market.

Enjoy the snack, and receive a free recipes book with healthy, fast and easy ideas for feeding the family.


10:45-11am - Let us know what you think!

Share your thoughts. Do you like the signage? Are the foods catered well for the people you serve? We can answer your questions.

Slowly head back to the office with a clearer idea of how you can build a relationship with Sonia to transform the healthy food retail environment in Historic Filipinotown.

Return to your day a little less hungry, and very excited about this new community project!
